Pett Village Hall: Can you spare a few hours a week to help Pett Village Hall? Pett Village Hall is a thriving community asset that is used by village residents and non-residents alike. The hall is run by the Pett Village Hall Management Committee (PVHMC), made up of dedicated volunteers, who are now looking for someone to take over the role of Bookings Manager.

The actual duties, which include taking bookings over the phone and by email and following up with the necessary admin, will take around three hours spread across the week and if you feel that you could fulfill this valuable role for your local community and help Pett Village Hall continue to be the success that it undoubtedly is, please contact me on the email below.
